What time do u guys think personally was gamespot's golden age? (in terms of site funcionality and the personalities on the feature shows such as the hotspot on teh spot ttv button mashing etc...

i think for me since im sort of a newbie and have only been with the site for about 2 years i think it was about summer of 2006 for me basically up until greg kasavin left.

Some time before I got here. Everything good on the internet died before I ever found it.

I've been here since 2001, and for me it was during 2003. It seems that once they changed the forum system and created unions that the website itselfwent downhill drastically.

It is not as controversial as it used to be... lost a lot of its spark...

People around here always likes to think the best times have passed. human nature i guess. if this was 1999, they would be saying 1997 rocked and it will never rock as hard.

I guess I'll have to say 03 up to 05. After that, it pretty much went to ****.

Well I've only really been coming here since 2003 and registered since '04, and I'd say it was best from the time I registered (end of '04) until about the end of '05. But it was probably even better before I ever found it in '03.

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but it's annoying when people think Gamespot is not as good as it used to be. I see nothing wrong with it now.

Hmmmm..............

Gamespot's golden age was when you can start a topic in systemwars that went something like:

"LAWL MARIO SUNSHINE FLOPPPEEDD SHEEEPP GOT OOOWWNNNEED!!!

TSHBO!!!!!!!"

Just basically you could of said and done ANYTHING and mods didn't get mad at you for it. I guess all good things come to an end.

Those were good times = )
